This year the ward's got to do their own girl's camp which I just love. It is an opportunity do do something a little different and you get your girl's all to yourself!! This year we went to Bryce Canyon. We stayed in the Ruby Inn Campground in the Tepee's. That is a fun adventure because you are surrounded by the public and at their mercy. People apparently don't follow the old campground etiquette rules so much any more. Generators and music at night etc. Oh well no big deal.
Mendis went with me and we headed up Friday morning since I had a Credit Union Meeting Thursday night. We got there just in time for the hike. Thank goodness since I would have been so bummed to have missed that. We got to hike the Rim Trail at Bryce which was just gorgeous. Of course watching the girls at the edge about killed me but no one fell over I am pleased to report. Not for lack of trying though...

We had a nice devotional after dinner and our annual testimony meeting which is always the highlight of the whole camp. Each evening Jeff Jensen favored the girls with a poem he created just for them detailing the events of the day. He dressed up in a wild outfit and made everyone laugh and then he would deliver a treat of some kind. Here he is delivering the goodies for s'mores before the awesome poetry!

While Mendis and I weren't there for very long we were sure glad we could make it for part anyway. It was so nice to spend some time with the girls away from the distractions of the world and have some fun together.
